um

Tee hee. Or is that ha ha? Or is it he he? (C and I never know. We had a debate about which sounds better, especially when it comes to smsing men. We’re still unsure.)

OK, so I went home yesterday evening, put on my best underwear in preparation for an evening by myself. I figure wearing sexy underwear makes one feel a hundred bucks when alone. I have convinced myself that I am a sexy bitch, and quite frankly, I’m happy to stare at my own curves in great underwear from La Senza if need be. Chatted to Chad my rat and almost settled in for an evening of Home & Away and Grey’s Anatomy with The Ant over her pasta a la Tomato Whatever.
And like, I didn’t spend it alone. R came over for dinner.

I asked him if he'd found my blog yet. Negative. Also hadn't tried to look for it, bless him.

Let’s try to forget about me setting the fucking TV cabinet on fire for a second.

Luckily nobody saw.

I set it alight. I lit incense and didn’t put the little fuckers on a bowl. They burnt a blazing hole into the credenza TV cabinet. I like the word credenza, since Kath & Kim use it regularly. Right.

What to do when you set your furniture alight? Dowse it with wine. Works like a bleeding charm. Burnt my fingers on the blazing inferno, and luckily the video machine and DStv thingie didn’t fall prey to the brunt of the blaze.
Bloody ridiculous. I am a nightmare at the moment.

My head is so not screwed on correctly at present, or maybe it’s just floating in the clouds somewhere above Tasmania. More probable. Or both. Even.

Bless. He arrived with salad stuff and…strawberries and cream. To couple with The Ant’s pasta. We all watched Grey’s Anatomy, and I introduced him to my rodent.

However, after oohing and ahhing over his beautiful house, something was amiss.

Chad had disappeared. Crisis.
Tipped his supersonic cage all but upside down, and thought the little bugger had weaselled himself out of there. Runaway Rat. Fudging escaped, and was concurrently chewing his way through my mattress. Luckily he was stuck in some obscure part of tube. Upside down. (He digs hanging like a bat, upside down. It perturbs me somewhat.)

It was chilled. If anything is happening - I’m still unsure - he's being the perfect gentleman. Which is bloody awesome. We haven't chatted about anything yet, it's just sort of gone to another level. Hugs and kisses stuff. Lucas the security guard was eyeing him out funny, as he does my um, men.

I feel like going skiing in France. It’s been too long.

With fiery credenzas and runaway rats, who needs TV?

Pete said...

Hmm.. His fuck-buddy approach didn't work, so now he's switched to the strawberries-and-cream method.. This guy is nothing if not industrious:)

Shortypam said...

maybe u should tie a bell to ur rodent.. then ul be able to find the blighter more easily

Peas on Toast said...

Kyk - I know. Cept it was a really good episode. ;)

Pete - Isn't it insane? He's been nothing short of incredible since 'the 'chat' ten days ago. It's really quite hilarious.

Shorty - the pet store I bought Chad at has little bell collars for rats. Would it be very Paris Hilton to buy one for Chad? If he got out, all hell would break loose.

Pete said...

Ja, not wanting to be a downer, but he's obviously very charming, and you're obviously very susceptible to being charmed, so, you know, make sure his motives with you are good, or something..

Suavé said...

Hmmm, this guy has a good formula going on with the strawberries and all. Could he have possibly changed his mind about the fuck-buddy thing like Pete says or is he just going with the flow till he gets to hit it and then be out? You must be careful of these kinda things Peas, he could be a wolf in sheeps clothing. But if not then I'm happy for you, wherever this is going!

Crusoe said...

Geez, this guy sounds pretty smooth. Are you not a little worried that he may be taking this too seriously right now? Or is that what you are looking for?

I thought you prefered a guy that came around with strawberries & cream for your flatmate, as an apology for all the screaming he was going to elicit out of you! ;)

Peas on Toast said...

Pete and Suavie - thanks guys. For having my best interests at heart. Look he never actually asked me to be his fuck-buddy. He basically said (I think?) that he wasn't sure about a relationship right now.
I'd be very weary if he was pushing me to sleep with him, or whatever. Thing is he's even being very 'disciplined' as he says, about kissing me too much. He is playing it very cool affection-wise, yet is behaving like a gentleman with things like boat rides and stuff. I am weary though, thanks guys. I don't want to be hurt this year again - enough is enough.

I've also taken something from my last relationship: take day by day. I'm not thinking of tomorrow, I'm not asking about tomorrow, I'm not having any expectations. Which is why I am unsure whether this is going anywhere at all. I'm holding him at arm's length, mainly because my last relationship taught me to do that. I should probably thank him actually. :)

You guys are the best though, and I'll make sure I keep my feet firmly planted on the ground.

Peas, does Chad have weight issues, sounds as though he gets stuck quite often :)
Oh and thought I'd make you jealous.. I've just organised a ski trip for me and 23 of my friends for early next year to the 3 valleys in France. I've been hooked ever since i moved to london and discovered that it's just about the only sport i can do well with 1 pin.

Peas on Toast said...

Crusoe - perhaps one of these days. We are both not even considering sleeping togethr right now. Mainly because we are comin from being friends. It's different somehow.

Perhaps if he was an oke I picked up somewhere that I didn't know before. But this is a totally diff situation.
I don't know. I just don't want to overanalyse it.

He is being uber smooth though, but enuienly nice. :)

Peas on Toast said...

Anon - bloody hell, the Trois Vallees! You lucky bugger! :) And with 23 mates, how much fun!!!!
It's also the only sport I can do properly and actually enjoy. :)

Crusoe said...

Sounds like he is giving you enough incentive to keep going, but also enough rooom to move at your own pace - definitely a gent! I respect that...

It is the question said...

"he's being the perfect gentleman. Which is bloody awesome. We haven't chatted about anything yet, it's just sort of gone to another level. Hugs and kisses stuff."

Who, R or Chad?

IITQ

It is the question said...

Oh, and are you sure you bought rat-size tubes and not mouse-size ones?

Peas on Toast said...

Crusoe - definietly. I'd be more weary if he were trying to get into my doondies the whole time and he's not. But still, thanks for your heads up, am keeping a healthy perspective about all this. :)

It is Question - Lol - no R. :)

He also asked about the mouse-sized tubes. They said at the pet shop they're fine for a rat. But he's growing, so I hope he doesn't get stuck...

duzbin said...

"I have convinced myself that I am a sexy bitch, and quite frankly, I’m happy to stare at my own curves in great underwear from La Senza if need be. Chatted to Chad"

Chads a lucky rat...

Peas on Toast said...

Lol duzbin - isn't he just? ;)

fida said...

you supposed to laugh like this : BUHAHAHAHA...............BUHAHAAHAHA..............BUHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

got it?

Peas on Toast said...

Buhahahahahaha, bwahahahah Fida. I like!

JamesW said...

Yeah, tee hee or hee hee is te gay. Makes me think of a bunch of giggling school girls, that just grates my carrots. I stick with lol or medium laughs, bwhahahaa for big laughs and Mwhahaha for evil laughs

Champagne Heathen said...

Aaaawwww sweet!! See...it's all about the season of Spring!

Peas on Toast said...

James - Mate we giggle all the time. It's just what we do china.

Champers - Bless hey! Third Roommate is also getting some loving of late, as are some other friends of mine. ;) Must be spring...:)

Champagne Heathen said...

So that whole flat is alovin'!?! Good form! Well, not that you're aloving, more that you're "introducing him to your rodent" over strawberries & cream.

Jam said...

Can I come skiing in France with you please? Won't be bringing a partner.

Mike Hussey said...

Peas- I'm up in JHB this Saturday for one night at the Colony. Make sure you are there are wear something nice.

Daedalus said...

Ertjie,

Daedalus raised one eyebrow only on the "dewd with cream" issue. (Insert pregnant pause here…)

PS: If you follow Ostendo commentators – you would have picked up the “Bwhahahaha!” thing is common "virtual laughter" and … “hehe” is almost as lame as the misuse of “LOL” :)

other-duke said...

hmmm... La Senza... curves... sorry what were you talking about?

Peas on Toast said...

Jam - of course you can dollface. Wanna go tomorrow? (After lots of tequila and hangovers)

Mike - as long as you wear something pretty as well. ;)

Daedalus - dewd with the cream...bwahahah :) ERtjie xx

O-D - oh you make me blush! ;)

Daedalus said...

Buy cream Daedalus!, buy cream…! oh!, and roses and so on …
(Nah! … been there, failed there - strike that).

I still have an eyebrow raised @ "Fabio" though … (...the "no-relationship disclaimer" so early is fishy) ;)

Peas on Toast said...

Daedalus - for sure. I also am weary. So I'm reading into anything right now. As far as I can tell, I'm still a happy singleton. :)

Champagne Heathen said...

I think that it's incredibly intelligent. He sounds like a lawyer. Keep things going as progressing towards a normal relationship, except for 1 dinner in which you input a disclaimer. When things go wrong, you're free of guilt!

Peas, best you put in your own disclaimer, that his original disclaimer becomes null & void after so many weeks/ months/ dates/ whatever of edging towards a relationship!

Daedalus said...

Ertjie, Yeah, the pro’s and con’s of singledom, ey?.

Daedalus said...

Champs,

It seems you know what I am referring to. Sincerity is a rare commodity in the dating game.

Peas on Toast said...

Champers - he's an engineer. ;) Must be honest, I'm completely terrfied of putting in a "are we, aren't we?" disclaimer. I think Small Bum fucked that up for me. Scared he'll run for the hills like he did if I do that. So I'm unsure what to do right now.

I think I'll just go along as usual, then when or if things progress, oh, who knows.

Goddamit.
I'm single. Single, single, single and I refuse to let my guard down. Ever again!

Crusoe said...

Skiing is the most addictive thing in the world. Not sure if it has anything to do with it being like white powder, but once you try it you are hooked! I'm going again in January, but I think I'm going to try my hand at snowboarding this time. Those ski boots are just too much!

Peas on Toast said...

Crusoe - skiing is so addictive isn't it?? There's nothing better on this Earth.They're a complete bitch to walk in, those ski boots, but I'm old school skiing all the way. It would be a ball ache to fall all over the mountain again on a snowboard. Maybe one day...

Champagne Heathen said...

I reckon he doesn't have the first clue either about what's going on. That's why you're both just meant to bumble along & see, and take each day at a time and all.

He probably doesn't have any answers either so it would be pointless asking him.

Don't let our banter freak you out & think there are wedding bells and all...although if there are such bells on the horizon, I'm willing to be it'd one kickass party! Ha Ha!

(Is "Ha Ha" allowed as a virtual laugh?)

Don't snowboards have boots too?

Daed - I ALWAYS know what you're refering too ;)

Peas on Toast said...

Champers - phew. That's what I figured. I'm only thinking day-to-day here. I'm also scared of freaking out, now that I am used to and happy with my own space.

Crusoe said...

I've spent my life on a skateboard so I should take to snowboarding quite quickly. We're going to Verbier in Jan which I hear is quite nice so I'm busy saving like a mad man!

On a separate note, you were talking about driving around in an Audi recently and loving it. Well, I drove the new Audi TT in London last week, and it is absolutely fucking amazing. I had the shakes afterwards and didn't want to leave. You have to go test drive one when they arrive in SA in Decemeber/Jan.

john said...

"talk to him about it", why??? excuse my male ego but thats such a girl thing to do .. and what exactly are you going to say ... relax, life has a way of working things out on its own .... if you approach it like marriage then you bound to scare the bajeebers out of him, if you having fun and enjoying hanging out ... let it ride ...

Champagne Heathen said...

Clever guy, that John.

(Somewhere in my last comment I meant 'bet' not 'be').

Peas on Toast said...

John I do agree with you 100%. I really do.

But realise too, that girls are programmed to do this. This is what makes us girls.

Daedalus said...

Champs,

People sometimes just do not get what I am on about LOL! … I distinctly remember a day filled with typo’s on your blog Hahaha..!!

Ertjie,

U R Single, U R Single, U R ... letting your guard down.

How about... Muwahahaha...slightly evil...OR...Muwehehe... evil but sassy!
